The Cuxhaven National Park Center is an information and educational facility for the "Lower Saxony Wadden Sea" National Park sponsored by the City of Cuxhaven and funded by the State of Lower Saxony. The visit is free.
The fact that the city of Cuxhaven has succeeded in bringing the Wadden Sea and the protection of this unique natural landscape into the focus of the public with the National Park Center is illustrated by the annual visitor numbers (around 60,000).
A natural history museum and ecological station at the same time. Here, the various landscape forms of the coastal region and the flora and fauna found in them are shown in a permanent exhibition. Ecological nature trails with their observation stations give an insight into the flora and fauna behind the dike.
Located at the mouth of the Elbe and opposite the western entrance to the Kiel Canal on the world's busiest shipping route (approx. 50,000 ships per year), Cuxhaven, as a seaport, is an ideal starting point for maritime traffic to Great Britain, Scandinavia and the other Baltic Sea states. Time-consuming trips to the area are no longer necessary; the fairway conditions are ideal and allow even the largest ships to call at Cuxhaven. There is also a connection to the hinterland via the motorway and railroad.
Since the beginning of this century, Cuxhaven has been Germany's largest fishing port after Bremerhaven. After the withdrawal of the navy and the end of liner traffic to New York in the 1960s, only fishing and processing were the main points of the port scene in Cuxhaven. Unfortunately, fish landings in Cuxhaven have also been steadily decreasing since the beginning of the 1970s. In this situation, the beginning of the 1980s, RoRo handling brought new impetus to the port of Cuxhaven. With the construction of a modern RoRo facility, the most modern in Northern Europe, Cuxhaven took the decisive step away from the monostructured port, which almost exclusively depended on fish, towards the so-called multi-purpose port.
Since the new RoRo terminal soon reached its capacity limits due to the considerable increase in handling, the state of Lower Saxony decided to build a new multi-purpose handling facility in the area of the former America port. After Hamburg handed over the Amerikahafen, which he owned, to Lower Saxony in 1993 after long and tough negotiations, construction of the new port facility could begin. The state of Lower Saxony invested around 280 million DM in the construction of this new port, which went into operation on October 1, 1997.
According to information from the Hafenwirtschaftsgemeinschaft Cuxhaven e.V., the pure construction time of the facility took three years - without any preparatory and planning work. This construction measure not only included flushing, dredging and embankment work, but also various nature compensation and replacement measures. The new EuropaKai on the Elbe is 1095 m long and has three berths for seagoing vessels. According to the port management association, every two berths are equipped with RoRo bridges or for crane handling. The water depth is max.Kn - 15.80 m.
On the west side - towards the Amerikahafen - an inland quay ("Humbertkai") was built, which went into operation in 1996. The entire transshipment facility covers an area of 43 hectares. The motorway slip road and the newly laid railroad tracks lead directly to the storage areas, halls and quays. A transshipment station with a 2,500 square meter roof was built. The railway ramp of the port complex also has a 2,500 square meter roof. The entire track system was designed in such a way that so-called "block trains" can be formed. The main route to the Maschen marshalling yard begins directly at the terminal. The motorway distribution network to Hamburg and Bremen is only 650 m away from the terminal.
Many ships for which Cuxhaven is "on the way" can easily unload or pick up their cargo here without a time-consuming journey through the area. Efficient transshipment facilities at Europakai and Humberkai ensure that ships can be loaded and unloaded quickly using cranes, as well as problem-free ro-ro transshipment via stern or bow ramps and side gates.
All of this leads us to expect very good handling figures for the new port. The city of Cuxhaven has also taken care of this. that there is sufficient space for industrial and commercial facilities in the immediate vicinity of the new port.
The quay structure was carried out on behalf of the State of Lower Saxony by the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Elbkai Cuxhaven", in which six North German construction companies with many years of experience in civil engineering and hydraulic engineering had come together. Data. The new EuropaKai on the Elbe is 1,025 m long and has three Berths for seagoing vessels.
